Mary (ROGERS) ALEXANDER, wife of Capt. John D. ALEXANDER, died yesterday at her home in this city, of Diphtheria. She was in her 59th year and lived here {Bedford, Lawrence County} for the past eight years. Mrs. ALEXANDER had been sick for several weeks but was though to be improving. Her death came as a shock to her friends and the community as on account of the disease with which she was afflicted her friends had not been able to call upon her, and while she had been sick for several weeks, she was thought to be improving.

Mrs. ALEXANDER filled all the meaning of the term, a good woman. She was a devoted helpmate to her husband, an earnest Christian, a worker in all the movements and efforts for good. She was a member of the Presbyterian Church, and was active in church and Sunday-school.

There are left to mourn her a wide circle of friends and relatives. To Capt ALEXANDER the bereaved husband, is extended sympathy. The remains were taken to Bloomington, and buried with her relatives at the Rogers Cemetery this afternoon.
(her remains have apparently been moved from Rogers Cemetery to Rose Hill Cemetery). (bio by: genealogyfever)
